Hit the jump for the scoop on what is shaping up to be Lawnparties pt. 2, minus Aaron Carter and the prep-mockery, plus some minor but necessary formalities.
Many have drawn the comparison between Potter's voice and that of blues-rock goddess, Janis Joplin -- and they're not wrong. Her attractive energy with the perfectly raucous Nocturnals make for great pop-rock tracks like "Stars" and "Paris (Ooh La La)." No doubt, fans and non-fans alike will find something to groove to at this concert. Also appropriately for a campus-wide event, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals are a dad-rock friendly band. That's not to say that their sound is dated, but it definitely appeals to a wide range of ages. Maybe we'll even spot a few dancing Princeton administrators...no twerking though, this will not be that kind of show.
Consistently catchy and undoubtedly talented, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals have a wide range of repertoire as well. Be sure to check out favorite tracks, "The Lion The Beast The Beat," "Never Go Back" and "Goodbye Kiss" for a good sample of tunes. All in all, it's looking good for President Eisgruber's first day in office -- on a serious note, let's hope this is a sign that the new administration will continue Shirley Tilghman's dedication to fostering the arts on campus.
